DIAZ RODRIGUEZ, E  y  CABALLERO ROMERA, A. Fundus albipunctatus associated with cone dystrophy: A familiar case report. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2003, vol.78, n.12, pp.685-688. ISSN 0365-6691.

We report a familial case of fundus albipunctatus associated with cone dystrophy. Case report: Thirty-eight year-old male diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa in another center. The main complain is a worsening of his night and color vision. Clinical and electrophysiological studies confirm the association of fundus albipuncatus with cone dystrophy. The family study found another cone dystrophy-associated case in his thirty-three year-old affected brother. Discussion: Though it is considerated a stationary disease, we report the association of fundus albipunctatus with symptoms and signs related to cone dysfunction. We review the possible nature of this association.

Palabras clave : Fundus albipunctatus; cone dystrophy; 11-cis retinol dehydrogenase.
